According to a GoErie.com report, Steve Stephens died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound Tuesday morning.

State police spotted his vehicle near Erie and began to follow it.

A multistate manhunt for the suspect in a random killing that Cleveland police say he recorded and posted to Facebook is entering its third day.

Authorities say it’s now a nationwide search for 37-year-old Steve Stephens, who’s wanted on an aggravated murder charge in the shooting death of a 74-year-old retired man in Cleveland on Sunday.

It’s difficult to muster sympathy for this man. He murdered an innocent old man who didn’t deserve to die like that.

Most people have a hard time imagining why Stephens would target an elderly man.

And what of Facebook

The social media site apparently wants to compete with Hollywood. Talks about live crime dramas.

Facebook recently featured black teen thugs gang-raping a young black woman.

And the social media giant is no stranger to murders on camera, as Stephens’ shooting indicated.

What’s next? A serial killer documents his killing spree? Or perhaps a serial rapists shows how he picks his prey?

On Monday evening, Facebook announced that it was launching a review for reporting harmful content following the killing. The company says it disabled Stephen’s account within 23 minutes of receiving the first report about the video of the fatal shooting and two hours after receiving any report. Facebook says, “We know we need to do better.”

So this wasn’t already under review by Facebook?

What made Stephens crack?

Stephens seems to have his own person war on woman, specifically Joy Layne.

A gun range owner says the suspect had shot at his facility, and video shows he was warned for breaking rules by practicing “rapid fire.”

Owner Blake Frederick says Stephens visited Sherwin Shooting Sports within the past year. Frederick tells Cleveland.com he recalls Stephens as nice and jovial, not negative.

WEWS-TV reports that a video Stephens posted to Facebook last year showed him rapidly firing at targets at the range in Willoughby and being warned to stop by an employee.

Police say Stephens had a permit to carry a concealed weapon.
